To anyone who says that the organizations try to get more viewers with tweaks to the game: You are correct, but you are proving my points. The organization puts it on themselves to get more viewers. They don't call out individual athletes for not attracting fans. It is the athletes job to win, and it is the organizations job to make people care.
To the person who said that those other organizations aren't ppv based: You are correct, but they do get a nice chunk of money from ppv like systems. I paid around $300 for the MLB extra innings package this year, and I am about to spent around $600 between NFL Sunday ticket, NFL Sunday ticket max, and college game plan. I'm sure I will watch some shitty games along the way, and if I saw enough, I probably wouldn't order again next year, but I doubt Goddell calls anybody out because of it.
